found a radiator that has a couple small holes in in (can barely see them). How hard is it to repair them? Should I attempt to braze them myself?

thanks

is it an alluminum radiator? If it is a stock radiator then it should be souldered (not sure if i spelled that right)and you should be able to do that yourself. Weve had good luck with the ones we fixed.

blue bomber. i am a radiator repairman. and i would recommend taking the rad to a repair shop. unless you have prior soldering experience. if you are unfamiliar with doing this sort of thing you can damage a radiator real fast. and they can presure it up to make sure it is not leaking.
